The Best Roatan Resort Communities:
Because of its size, Roatan offers more and better options for resort communities that its sister islands of Utila and Guanaja. Although there are many different development projects going on in Roatan, the difficult economic times in the past year have put a dent on the progress of many of them. Our selection for the best Roatan resort communities is based on the following premises:
Security of your investment.
When you invest in a project that is still on the drawing board or in the process of being built, you are taking a gamble as to how the community will look like when finished. Selecting a resort community to invest in is a big decision, you are probably looking for a place to retire in, or at least to take refuge in during those cold winter months when living at home can be a real test! You want to make sure that your investment is not only safe, but that you will be able to enjoy yourself with it and be proud of it. You want a place where you can invite your family and or friends and feel comfortable having them at your home and seeing your lifestyle!
Quality of construction and infrastructure.
You are moving into the Caribbean, into Latin America, but you still expect the quality and comfort you have back home. A cheap construction and infrastructure will result maintenance problems you do not want to buy into. There is nothing worse that buying a piece of paradise and having it turn into bloody hell because things don’t work!
Not only is it important to you that your investment in a resort community is easy to get to, by this meaning a good paved road, you also want to make sure that getting to it is a pleasure. Nothing worse that having to drive through trash and slums to get to your piece of paradise!
Based on the above criteria, we have selected the best Roatan resort communities, where you can invest safely and enjoy yourself at the same time. These Roatan resort communities offer a range of possibilities, from purchasing a beachfront or ocean view lot to building your dream house on it; an existing or redesigned home, or purchase a condominium unit that you can enjoy, and have it rented out when you are not using it help cover the costs of maintenance. Some of them also allow the possibility of having your yacht conveniently docked at the marina waiting for you to enjoy it!
